Sigma-Aldrich to Commercialize Cyntellect s CellXpress Services

NEW YORK , April 27 (GenomeWeb News) -  Sigma Aldrich will market Cyntellect's CellXpress services to biopharmaceutical markets served by the SAFC/JRH Biopharma unit, the companies said today. 


CellXpress, a service for isolating high- titer cells for production of biotherapeutics, will provide "access to state-of-the-art technology" and a "clear competitive advantage" to SAFC/JRH customers, according to Carl Schrott, the biopharma unit's strategic marketing manager.


Schrott credited CellXpress with having the abilities to enable the "cloning of cell lines that secrete significantly greater amounts of protein than cell lines" than competitive technology in "a shorter amount of time." 


Financial details were not discussed.
